"Whether it's a monarchy, republic, federation, commonwealth, or other forms of government, it stays the same. ... In the USA, the head of state is the president. Furthermore, in the parliamentary system of government, the head of government is the premier or Prime Minister."
So, the head of state in the US is the President and in Canada the Prime Minister. Both countries vote their President or Prime Minister into office.
I saw the 75 year old man pushed by police on TV and all the police just walked by him. I don't know who finally came to his aid. He is in hospital now. No regard for life at all. The back of his head was bleeding. By the way not everyone hates CNN.
Happy Easter to all. My kids brought me a yummy turkey dinner since we cannot be together. We keep our distance. Just had a nice video chat with some of my family. Have been watching church services over zoom which is neat and also You tube.
The change is just rounded off. I haven't had any trouble in Manitoba using change and dollar bills. However our dollar bills are plastic now. One guy was at Dollarama here and pulled his five dollar bill out of his pocket and it had melted. You cannot get this plastic money close to heat. They should have stayed with paper. I guess they thought the plastic would last longer and maybe so as long as it doesn't melt.
Canada got rid of the penny a number of years ago. I don't even miss it. However we have a lot of coins. We have the lonnie ($1.00) and the Tonnie ($2.00). They have even talked about putting the $5.00 bill into a coin. I don't think that will happen though. So there is a lot of change here. The change gets heavy so I dump it into jars. I have cashed in over $500 in change in the past few weeks. Will help for a trip.
